Does anyone know why the Dean police officer was fired at Bean Station? Is that the only two places he has been fired?

He was fired from Mt. Carmel for putting on his time sheet for time that he didn't work. Hawkins Sheriff Dept. was gave a choice to quit or be fired. Northeasten State was fired. Bean Station for the best for the town. So why would want someone who had to pay the town back some where about eight hundred dollars. You don't call him a policeman.

You all want to point the finger at kenny lungsford when in fact Noone know the truth except kenny lungsford he's a police officer he has a job to do and he did what he felt was with in his job. I'm a ex police officer from NYPD no I wasn't fired. There's always problems in this but yet put your self in his shoes in that time and tell me what you do you save your own life as well. Chicago pd trains there police very well and they do there jobs. They don't just wear the uniform to say. He's got many years as a cop. That's a plus for me. I'd be more then honored to work side by side or need back up from kenny lungsford. So before you judge and say anything ask your self what you do and what police are trained to do. Bet if it was you he was protecting you wouldn't be here trash talking about something you have no idea about or was there. I don't care what the courts say he wasn't fired. He retired says alot.
